Do I need a lawyer for a traffic violation?

If you have been pulled over and cited for a traffic violation, you may wonder if it is necessary to consult with an attorney regarding your defense. Many people believe that traffic violations are minor or that the consequences are minimal and they do not consider the potential for serious penalties. If you have received a traffic violation, your rights and your driving privileges are at risk. At Wheless & Wheless, PLLC, we have significant experience in the aggressive defense of traffic violations.

Traffic violations are serious and should be handled by a well-qualified attorney. You should NOT try to handle a traffic violations defense by yourself or simply pay the fine. Contact us to speak with a legal team equipped to effectively protect your rights.

What if I just mail in the check?

Simply paying the fine is an admission of guilt that is either difficult or impossible to reverse. This admission may result in additional penalties such as the loss of your license, an increase in insurance premiums, and will go on your record that could result in more severe penalties in the future.

Why do I need an attorney?

Many people believe that they can adequately represent themselves in court. You will have to assert your rights against an experienced prosecutor who is seeking to convict you. Without an advocate in court, you have no representative who can accurately assess your case and inform you of your rights. We will explore all of your options and alternatives and inform you of your rights and the potential consequences of your case.

Law enforcement officials, prosecutors, and judges are officers of the court and will not adequately represent your interests or protect your rights.

Many people take advice from police officers or expect to be informed of their rights or options when they arrive in court. Law enforcement officers, District Attorneys, and other officers of the court are only working towards your conviction. Only an attorney hired as your legal representative will protect your rights.
